EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP
Describing the engrossing, frequently hilarious Banksy-directed Exit Through the Gift Shop as one of the best story-driven documentaries I’ve ever seen would almost certainly be misleading, as its veracity has been a point of contention since its Sundance premiere. To delve into the topic further would require detailing plot details that I’d be remiss to give away, so I’ll just say this: The strength of the film is that whether or not it’s authentic doesn’t matter. The ultimate take-away from the picture comes from a place of complete truth, and that truth only resonates in the way that it does because the story was told in this form. Not only does the picture provide fascinating insight into the world of graffiti art, but it tackles the nebulous subject of the nature of art and people’s perception of it in a way that appalled and fascinated me. Give it a chance, and I’m sure it will do the same to you.
Available on Blu-ray? No.
Notable Extras: B Movie film about the ‘Art’ of Banksy, a Life Remote Control (Lawyer’s Edit) movie that started it all, deleted scenes, and limited edition inserts designed by Banksy.

Amazon – $11.99

Lots of cool film-related stuff happens in Boston, Massachusetts and not that many people are here to document it, preserve it and spread the word about it. Special screenings, Q&As, panel discussions — we have them all, and frequently too. /Film Boston aims to be a bi-weekly column that will bring you audio and video content from film-related events around the Boston area. If you don’t live in Boston, I hope that this column will give you a window into some of the cool stuff that happens here regularly. If you do live here, hopefully you’ll come here to get the heads-up on what’s been going on, and what is to come. As always, every edition of /Film Boston is available at http://www.slashfilm.com/boston.

After the break, a hilarious interview with Jay and Mark Duplass, the directors of Cyrus (at least, it was hilarious for us). Plus, your chance to get free tickets to a screening of Cyrus this Wednesday at the Boston Commons AMC at 7 PM.

International Movie Trailer: Cyrus

Cyrus

One of the films I really loved at this year’s Sundance Film Festival was The Duplass Brothers Cyrus, a comedy about “a recently divorced depressed guy who meets the woman of his dreams, who he learns lives with her 21 year old son.” The film stars John C. Reilly, Marisa Tomei, Jonah Hill, and Catherine Keener. You can watch our Park City Video Blog Review of the film by clicking here. The movie is finally set to hit theaters this Summer, opening in New York and Los Angeles on Friday, June 18th and will expand to additional cities across the country and Canada in the weeks following. Click here to see a full list of cities and dates.

In January, Searchlight released a trailer for the movie (which you can see here). They have now released an international trailer for the film, which forgoes the voiceover heard in the original and features a few unseen segments. Watch it now, embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.
